FRITTO MEDITERRANEO COVID-19 FUNDRAISER
The world is facing an unprecedented challenge with the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Communities around the globe are in dire need of immediate support, and more funding will be required as the outbreak continues to evolve.
I am organizing a fundraiser in support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and their COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
As an artist, I feel compelled to use my art in a way that contributes to the current climate in a positive way.
As an Italian living abroad, it is my duty to honour my home country and all countries which will inevitably suffer through this crisis.
This initiative will raise money through the donation of an entire collection of 100 original drawings entitled, Fritto Mediterraneo.
This collection was exhibited in my hometown of Pescara, Italy in 2018 and has since then led to many opportunities across Europe and North America.
The goal is to reach $5000 CAD to support the efforts of the World Health Organization and their COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Drawings can be acquired for a minimum of $55 CAD each(plus shipping fees) and proceeds will be donated. Donations will be processed through Pay Pal, and your generosity will be forwarded to the World Health Organization. A donation receipt, and certificate of authenticity will be sent to you. Please see below for the procedure.
WHAT IS FRITTO MEDITERRANEO?
Fritto Mediterraneo is derived from the iconic dish 'Fritto Misto' or 'Calamari Fritti' referring to an ensemble of seafood. It is a collection of 100 drawings, distinctive yet complimenting one another, just like the beloved dish. It is a series that captures a journey to reconnect with my roots, rich of the timeless beauty, traditions, and exotic flavours of Mediterranean cities through meticulous line work.
